New Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipsticks - Newly Berried & Prowler: Swatches & Review

Another new Hard Candy product that I spotted at Walmart recently are the Fierce Effects Lipsticks. These retail for $5 each.

The first thing that stood out to me was the adorable packaging. I love the little rhinestone lids, and the tops display the color of the lipstick inside. These are a weighty feeling lipstick. They're not cheap and lightweight. The packaging is really impressive for a $5 lipstick!

I picked out the shades Newly Berried, a pinky purple shade, and Prowler, a vampy wine shade - perfect for fall!

These both swatch really nicely. Newly Berried was opaque and pretty close to even on the first coat.  Prowler took a little bit more building, I think because of the slightly shinier, lustre type finish.  But it builds up nicely, especially on the lips.  The texture on these is really nice.  They're creamy, comfortable, and hydrating. They don't have a super long wear time, but that's to be expected with a glossier, more hydrating formula.

My only complaint would be the lack of wearable neutrals in the range. There are some neutral colors, but I passed on them both because they looked to have an almost metallic finish to them. All in all, I'm impressed with these new lipsticks! The packaging alone sucks me in, and the formula is really nice!
